Appointment: 2015-2018
Judaic Studies

Wollenberg_RebeccaDr. Wollenberg researches the afterlives of the Bible in Jewish and Christian history. Her current project investigates a moment in early Jewish history in which the rabbinic authorities became suspicious of reading as a source of religious information and ambivalent towards the written text of the Bible, after that circulation of the biblical tradition in written form made possible the growth of a rival biblical religion in Christianity.
